Quilt love

I loved it when it was all jumbled in my arms last week at the Salvation Army and I handed over the $6.98 to bring it home.

I loved it when it was soaking in the wash and coming to life again. There is something so soul reviving about stain removal.

I loved it hanging on the line yesterday. So at home on the little farm.

But I loved it most last night when I snuggled underneath. It smelled of Tide and sunshine and it hugged me all night long. It loves me back.

Oh what a find! I love quilts, they remind me of a simpler time in my childhood when my Mama had the quilting frame set up in our living room:) Ahhhhhh, sweet memories!

Have a blessed day! HUGS!

Beautiful find! My heart skips a beat when I come across a quilt at a thrift store; I've found three in the last few months but none quite as lovely as yours. Enjoy!

A wonderful purchase...just wonderful...it looks so at home hanging there on the clothes line.
Almost like it's saying.."I'm home!"
Love to you, my friend!

You find the neatest stuff. I want to go shopping with you but the drive is just too much. HA. I love some of the fabric used to make this. Snuggle away...
